Had a beast of a day at the office? A nasty argument with your other half? Incensed about the current state of geo-politics?
Suffer in silence no longer. At Greece’s first Rage Room, Limba, in Psirri, you can go postal and smash the place up.
Its new owners, Syros and Eleni, say they borrowed the idea from Argentina, hoping Limba would strike the perfect fun – and cathartic – note here in our recession-gripped country.
So what exactly is a rage room? (Or perhaps the question we really should be asking first is: “Why on earth didn’t we get one sooner!”).
Well, it’s a basement where you can visit and break everything in sight. You put on a pair of safety overalls, gloves and mask. Select the relevant menu of destruction (they have different wrath packages, so if you’ve ever fantasized about smashing your PC or television, this is your moment!), take your baseball bat, crowbar or other weapon of choice and knock yourself out (not literally. Obviously). You even get to pick the music to accompany your rage attack.
It might all sound a bit “A Clockwork Orange” – but from just €5 a visit, it’s a hell of a lot cheaper than a therapist.
(Although, if you’re flush enough and angry enough, you can splurge on a €100 Chaos package where you get to smash 80 bottles, two television sets, five cell phones, five stem glasses, five shot glasses and 10 plates.)
